It's mostly right. Try your guitar and amp settings.

Drive = moderate
Guitar volume = high
EQ = standard (not scooped) with extra highs

The last changes before the chorus are tough.
Play it with barre-chords that's how I got it.

Hey does anyone know the intro? I tried using the Amazing Slower Downer on it but I'm not very good at transcribing. Any help would be appreciated. Peace. :lol:

I'll try to use the tabcreator to tab out my likely bastardized version. I play this tune with a buddy of mine quite a bit.

There's actually a recording you can check out if you're interested at all. Check out www.rockcreekdivide.net Launch the player and then scroll down to Stealin'. Probably bastardized ;-) I'll see if I can't figure out the tabcreator. Someone might be able to then take that and figure out my errors. My ears ain't the best

Can someone post the song with the chords? I see they've been taken down since the last time I looked at this one.

Thanks!

I play it with three chords: G, C, D

Something like the following:

G
Put your arms around me like a circle round the sun
C
I wanna love ya mama like my easy rider done
G
Don't believe I love.......
C
Stealin' (still on G), stealin, pretty mama don't ya tell on me
G D G
Well I'm Stealin back, to my same old used to be


The walk down the G scale figures prominently throughout the tune to keep it interesting, since it hangs on G for quite some time. Again, all caveats in place.

You may know this but there is a book of Jerry Garcia and David Grisman tunes out that has Stealin' tabbed out in it...lyrics, chords and leads. Check amazon.com. I think I bought each for about $10. There are lots of other great old timey tunes in there too. Louis Collins is another favorite of mine.

I have both the Grisman and Garcia books and both are great. I tend to play mando more often than guitar but I often use the Jerry book more often since it has the lyrics in there and I can be a really space case when it comes to remembering lyrics.

Stealin' is a pretty easy tune to feel out leads on since you're playing over G, C, and D the whole time. I like to use the typical blues scale with chromatic triplets and little slides here and there. Dont forget to add a little swing to everything.
